Saint-Mihiel lies on the banks of the Meuse River.
A benedictine abbey was established here in 708 or 709 by Count Wulfoalde and his wife Adalsinde. The library, containing over 9,000 works, is still on the original site.
Saint-Mihiel is known for its sculptures by Renaissance sculptor Ligier Richier (1500–1567).
